If you've clicked thus far you probably know what the Good Beer Guide is. What you'll want to know is, is this edition of the same high quality? Well yes it is, as usual it?s got the same independently voted for pubs, clear information and detailed knowledge of all areas.
However this year the guide has increased its descriptions of each outlet to a very elaborate manner. Gone are the short shrift mentions, in are large verbose details of all the main entrants.
If you have bought a previous GBG you will also note that the "try also" feature has been dispensed with. In its place is a new Inn Brief section that adds additional pubs to a particular area. Now this is where the latest GBG does fall down.
The Inn Brief sections are far too disjointed from the main flow of the book. You can easily lose entrants for a particular place and sometimes you are rummaging for a place because it?s in a separate Inn Brief section. The Inn brief mentions are better than try also?s, but harder to find.
My review will score 5/5 as its based on quality and quantity of the book itself. However CAMRA needs to remove the try-also/ inn-brief feature. It doesn?t work and if a pub is in, it should be mentioned properly.
This cannot detract from the guides overall usefulness, appeal, research and quality... it's a bargain.

This latest edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide has longer descriptions and more information about the pubs.
The Good Beer Guide also contains a listing of just about every brewery in the UK with a list of the beers that they brew - no other pub guide has this information.
In summary, all you need to find excellent real ale in good pubs in one book.

The Good Beer Guide scores over all other pub guides in being researched not by strangers dropping by but by local drinkers who use the pubs regularly. Together with full information about breweries, it's why I always choose this guide above, often pretentious, other books.

Format: Paperback
Good Pubs or should I say 'Great British Pubs' seem to be considerably harder to come across these days. Rural pubs and back street locals are closing at an alarming rate and the remaining pubs, particularly town and city centre pubs, are steadily being turned into branded 'profit' bars with little character. The Good Beer Guide is a unique guide and is the ultimate pub lovers reference book. The guide is a true masterpiece that lists 5000 pubs where you can pretty much guarantee a great pint of beer and that it'll be in a pub with character and a decent 'pub' atmosphere. I've travelled the country with Good Beer Guides over the past 5 years and it's certainly had a very positive impact on my quality of life and I've rarely been disappointed. This is 'THE PUB GUIDE' to buy, uniquely dependable and a good deal more up to date and reliable than any of the competition. Ant.
